The flexure of infinite rectangular plates of varying thickness
It will be seen that the deflection and moment Mx are both zero on edges x=±a, ±3 a,... Hence the above solution is also valid for a plate of finite length simply supported on any two of these edges.
The evaluation of this integral must be performed numerically after the value of the thickness constant b has been selected to best fit the actual variation. This may be done by computing the integrand over a certain range for various values of γa and evaluating the integral in this range by Simpson's rule.
Beyond this range, the integrand may be written in simpler form and the integral evaluated in closed form. This involves considerable labor and, since the calculations must be repeated for each value of b selected, they will not be made here. Numerical calculations of Fourier integrals such as the above have been made by Girkmamn7 and the author8.
